Operational supportive tools are ultimately reviewed and exemplified via case reports in their functions within the above pointed out fields, in ways on the topic of real challenge fixing in agricultural creation. This compendium additionally desires to create a renaissance within the instructing (that is education/training/ extension) of utilized agrometeorology in any respect degrees, in the direction of the livelihood of farmers and different growers.

Motha and Murthy 2007). Advices based on the outcome of response farming exercises, from sowing window to harvesting time, using recent climate variability data and statistics or simple on-line agrometeorological information from an operational group of agrometeorologists assigned this duty, become again agrometeorological services. But only so when obtained together with inputs and assessments from farmers or intermediaries between these products and the users. It is our experience that the organizational power of such operational groups and their communication with these intermediaries or direct users are the crucial factors in these matters and demand for financial as well as scientific backing, locally as well as internationally.

I. In addition to all the cases collected in this book, there is need for more papers and books in that direction as well. In such works and again in agrometeorology in general, systematic and standardized data collection should cover here (i) the issuing, absorption and use of climate forecast information in agricultural production, (ii) agro-ecosystems and (iii) (changes in) awareness on increasing climate variability and the elevating risk, again in line with Sect. 1. This will also here assist a lot in policy design features and in designs of agrometeorological services in these issues under coping with climate variability and climate change.
